Dodge Neon Pops Out Of Fifth Gear

Q. Mr. Ciulla, I'm thinking about buying a 1995 Dodge Neon 2.0 liter. It has a manual transmission. A good car on the outside but their are two problems. First, the fan that is supposed to come on to cool down the engine doesn't come on. It's not the fan motor, because that was tested and I was wondering what you think it could be.

Second, the car jumps out of gear sometimes when put into fifth gear. The lady said that its some kind of clamp that keeps the car in gear. I don't know where the clamp goes or even if there is such a thing. If you could answer those questions that would be great.

Thank you...

A. If I answer your second question first, I won't have to answer your first question.

The transmission popping out of fifth gear is due to an internal transmission problem. If you buy this car, put some money away because you WILL be buying a transmission for it.

Walk away from this one and save yourself some headaches.
